Kathleen Tudor (b. near Lockeport, Shelburne County "This collection of shore stories by writers from Nova Scotia's South Shore gives us a sense of place, where generations of people have lived and worked. A place where the sea is a familiar background, a means of livelihood, yet never to be taken for granted - a child might drown, a boat runs into trouble. It shows us working people, men and women, sometimes struggling with poverty, sometimes struggling with class divisions and snobbery. What is distinctive about these people is their capacity for love, their passionate involvement with each other. A fierce individualism is embedded in family and kinship ties." - Donna Smythe " All the stories are strong in their explorationof family and the intensely scrutinized life of a small community, primary values in this old and very self-aware family- and village-centered part o f the world." - Lewis J. Poteet - comments from back cover. Includes: Jeff Doran's "That Wonderful Lizard of Ours"; Budge Wilson's "The Canoe Trip"; Veronica Ross's "Dreams and Sleep"; Joan Clark's "From a High Thin Wire"; Tudor's "Washday"; Darcy Rhyno's "Ragged Islands Burning"; Wilson's "Mrs MacIntosh"; Ross's "Whistling"; Doran's "Close Enough for Folk"; Rhyno's "Measuring Up"; Clark's "Italian Spaghetti"; and Tudor's "If It Isn't One Thing It's Another".
